USA DANCE DONATION TO TREASURE COAST FOOD BANK

Article by Dick Diamond

USA Dance of Martin-St. Lucie County, #6047, recently donated $1,050 from the proceeds of their two October dances and personal donations from chapter members to the Treasure Coast Food Bank. This money will go to feed 7,000 individuals in a four county area. They also donated $100 to the Police Athletic League (PALS) fundraiser of Ft. Pierce and $120 to the Alzheimer's Foundation fundraiser at the Emeritus Senior Living Facility in Jensen Beach. Members of this chapter also did volunteer dance performances for both fundraisers.

USA Dance is a national ballroom dance organization supporting both competitive and social dancing. The Martin-St. Lucie County chapter is a social chapter with dances held on the first Friday night and Third Sunday afternoon of each month. For more information check our website at www.usadancemartin-stlucie.org or on our Facebook at USA DANCE #6047 – MARTIN – ST LUCIE.

"
Our trip to make the presentation was a huge eye opener of how our donation will be used to serve others in need in the four county area surrounding us. We were given a tour of the facility and treated so well. You will also be interested in knowing the Food Bank has purchased a building that is being renovated now and will quadruple their warehouse distribution and office space. It is expected to be ready for use in about two more weeks. One thing we learned was how many of our residents are in need of food just to meet their everyday requirements.

I am very proud that Our Club is a Sponsor and hope we can continue doing this in the future."
